I read in a magazine or something somewhere that your .30-06 gold medal is designed for or more simply put, Garand friendly. I'm thinking it is the 168 grain loading. If so, please confirm. Also, is your 150 grain ballistic tip Garand friendly? From what I can tell from the experts on this site and battlerifles.com, the powder is one of the main things to make it "friendly". Plus the velocity or pressure. But too slow of a powder is bad. Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much sir. I recalled reading a magazine article about the battle rifle class at Thunder Ranch or somewhere like that, I'm pretty sure it was Clint Smith, and he recommended your load for the Garand. The 168 grainer that is. There is much to do about this subject, and no definitive answer. But I find your response excellent, because from what I can tell if it's the correct powder and close to original spec pressure, then it should be ok. Your 150 grain load seems like it'd be on the high end of pressure but hopefully not too much. I'm probably going to use it for deer hunting this year. I won't be using a ton of it anyways. Sorry for the long winded answer, thank you.

Now pay attention everyone, this is the appitomy of Customer Service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Jeff.
